“ Brand: Next / Type: Gilet Suit „
It was a couple of months ago, as the weather was gearing towards winter that I decided to by my daughter this outfit. I have a very peculiar taste when it comes to buying clothes for my daughter and the colours and patterns on this outfit immediately drawn me to it along with the fact that it looked very ideal for the cold weathers.
The outfit is specifically from next and is called 'welly fur gilet suit.' There are three parts to this outfit, the main part being the dress, secondly there is a small fur jacket and thirdly there is a pair of tights. The dress is a lovely shade of green, it's a very natural shade (not at all overpowering) and it is decorated in a pattern of wellington boots. There are wellington boots of all different colours and patterns ranging from floral to block colours printed all over this dress, this is mainly what attracted me to the outfit, it's very unusual and I haven't seen anything similar to such a design.
The jacket is really more like a shrug, it's a creamy colour and it is very furry and fluffy to touch, I find this really makes the outfit unique and different and I wouldn't think to use the dress on its own without it. The little shrug is detachable from the dress and is fastened into a bow with ribbon at the front. The tights that come with the outfit are very simple but again compliment the rest of the outfit. Apart from them being a lovely beige/brown colour there are two small little bows on the ankle area of each side.
The quality of the outfit is excellent, all three items feel like very good quality material and they have been in the washing machine several times and still come out looking like new. The only downside is that the fur shrug hasn't looked the same since its first wash, it now has more of a wet fur look rather than the fluffy new look it had when first purchased. I am not disappointed by this fact however as this was expected with this type of material.
My daughter doesn't really have a care for fashion; neither does she particularly care what she wears. She does however have a problem with uncomfortable clothing but I am pleased to say that she has never had any issues with this outfit, she hasn't even complained about the tights like she usually does with other pairs.
As well as the obvious of looking extremely cute and adorable, especially when worn, this is also a very practical outfit. The dress, shrug and tights are extra comfy and thick providing warmth in the winter months. Tights are also very practical for wearing boots over the top; this is what we usually tend to do in such extreme weathers.
This is definitely the nicest outfit I have bought my daughter this winter and we have had quite a lot of use out of it and I will predict that this outfit will last all the way until next winter too. The size we bought 4-5 is a lovely fit for my soon to be 4 year old and it still has plenty of growing room without looking baggy on her. This is an outfit that would suit a young child of any age and style as it is so versatile. I tend to find that certain colours don't suit my daughter but as this outfit is so unusual I would recommend it a style to suit everyone.
This outfit is part of the young girl range at next and sizes range from 3 months to 6 years. The outfit was rather pricey at £27 but it is totally worth it as it is excellent all round and definitely one that will last a rather long time. I would definitely recommend making the purchase.
